Kolkata: The lover of Mousumi Das, the teenaged girl who committed suicide while being live on Facebook early on Monday at her home in Sonarpur of South 24 Parganas, has been arrested by the police.

Suman Das, the accused, is a Class 12 student of Kamrabad School where Mousumi was in the same class also. He had opened a fake profile in the social networking site in the guise of ‘Aryan.’

When Mousumi, a resident of Baidyapara, threatened to commit suicide during an altercation while chatting with him on WhatsApp, another social networking site, he did not care, according to the police. Suman, the teenager, also switched off his cellphone after watching her committing suicide live on Facebook and he also did not alert anyone, the police found after examining the cellphone of Mousumi which was recovered from her room.

Mousumi’s family lodged a complaint with the police against Suman holding him responsible for her suicide.

At night Suman was caught from his house at Khurigachhi, close to Mousumi’s house, after the police tracked the tower location of his cellphone. He has been booked on abetment to suicide charge of the Indian Penal Code.

On Tuesday Suman was produced at the Baruipur Court which has remanded him in the police custody for three days.

Probing the suicide case the cops found that Mousumi did not know the original identity of ‘Aryan’ inititally. She was in an affair with him for the past couple of months, sources revealed.

Days before her suicide, she however, came to know about him from her friends who had warned her. This led to a tiff between Mousumi and her lover as she asked an explanation from him about his motive to hide his identity.

She also learnt that Suman was having other affairs to which she had vehemently objected but he ignored her objections.
